Essential Info

If the 16 zones that come with your M1 Gold security/automation system are insufficient, it's easy to add zones with the M1 16-Zone Input Expander. Up to 12 of these expansion boards may be connected with the included mounting glides, increasing your total zones up to 208. These 16 EOL resistor-supervised hardwire zones operate on the M1's four-wire Databus Hub and include on-board EOL bus termination jumpers. The M1 16-Zone Input Expander features DIP switch address settings and status and diagnostic LED. The input expander features flash memory, which allows field updating of its operating firmware. The M1, M1Gold panel and Databus Hub are sold separately.

    Worked flawlessly.
    Autonow -- Oregon   4/21/2013
    Does the job but i am NOT giving high reviews because it is designed to mount in the main panel that is too small with the alarm unit in it. AND they do not have a mounting box for it. You have to make something custom.

    Easy to install
    SANDY -- salt lake city, UT   2/12/2009
    many problems with reset. Still generates lost of reset log entries. Elk support is the best.
    PAUL -- charlotte, NC   2/21/2008
    Easy to install, but this unit does not have the mounting holes in the M1EZ8 can, so I had to fabricate something - this slowed down the installation.

    Easy to Install
